Jose Abreu remains on fire with three-hit game in Motor City
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The only unusual aspect of another big game for White Sox slugger Jose Abreu on Thursday was that he neither scored nor drove in a run. Other than that - typical Abreu.

The breakout star doubled twice, singled and walked twice in helping his team defeat Detroit. Abreu extended his hitting streak to 20 and has hit safely in 38 of his last 39 games. He leads the majors in home runs with 31 and RBI with 83.

Yasiel Puig nearly entire offense for Dodgers in Thursday win
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Brilliant left-hander Clayton Kershaw did not beat the Braves all by himself Thursday night. He needed help from Yasiel Puig - and he got it.

Puig played the role of offensive hero with a solo home run in the third inning, as well as a double and run. That proved to be all Kershaw required. Puig has been on a tear recently with 12 hits in his last 26 at-bats and eight runs in his last six games.

Jason Kipnis slugs rare home run in Thursday defeat
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The oblique injury that Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis has blamed for robbing him of his power did not rob him of his power Thursday night. He produced only his second game with a home run since April 21.

Kipnis blasted off with a two-run job in the third inning and added a double in a loss to Seattle. He sweetened his stat line to .243/.322/.356 in the process, but those numbers are significantly off what he achieved in 2013.
